The Gallery at Macon Arts Alliance is seeking submissions for the fifth annual juried show, Drawn to Macon. The first place winner will receive a solo exhibition, to be scheduled for 2023. This exhibition will represent selected visual artists who use drawing as an integral part of their creative practice. The Gallery will display diverse approaches and concepts that expand the traditional definition of “drawing”. This context of drawing is not restricted to specific media, subject matter or dimensional application meaning both 2D and 3D submissions are eligible. Submissions may be preliminary investigative work, experimental work, or finished products.
Artists may submit three pieces for consideration, three single images for 2D work and three pairs of images for 3D work.
